These have stock back spacing which is 3.75".

I buy them from Jegs or Summit when they have their big sales on and they are very affordable.

The fun starts today Tim. Yesterday I started addressing some fastener changes on the engine and now it's time to pull the rad, remove the water pump and undress the bottom of the car beginning with the exhaust. Slow and steady cleaning of the significant areas will then begin prior to any new or restored parts going back on. Oh and thanks for the nice pair of NOS fender aprons I was able to pick up from a couple site members.

Found a nice screw to complete the coil bracket.


Swapped out the intake bolts to M head markings. I added hardened steel flat washers to protect from marring.


Also added correct original lift brackets which were missing.

I know you are trying to put everything back correctly and detailing your engine compartment. I can't see it in your pictures. Do you have this bracket on your carb base to fuel line. Should be on later built cars, hard to find and expensive. Just curious. Beautiful car!!

I know the bracket you're talking about as I helped document one on a survivor LT-1 motor that an old friend had about 15 years ago, and no...that's missing from this car.

Don't think I ever saw one of those fuel line brackets on a 1969 Z/28. Maybe very late cars?

Found another small 1970 related part on the car earlier today. While pulling back the coolant lines I noticed the thermostat housing is part #3972128 which was also used on 70 Z/28's and Vette's. Still had an original AC Delco thermostat in it and will now get cleaned up and reused. Seems that engine builder George Kulp liked his black gasket sealant. He rebuilt the motor and this stuff is everywhere. I'll be changing the fuel pump and the fuel line as it has been kinked in a couple spots and was routed outside of the water pump housing rather than underneath it.


Looks like the late 10E cars might also have gotten a 70 style thermostat housing with #3972128 rather than a 660 housing?


I'll soak this in carb cleaner for a couple of days and clean it up for reuse.


I'll also clean up this AC Delco 195 degree thermostat and test it before I reuse it.


Debating whether I'll pull the motor right out to get better access to cleaning up the inner fenders and the hard lines which were crudely painted.


I'll try washing the inner fenders down with enamel reducer to see if I can knock it back a bit and rid the drip lines they created when they painted them.


I'll also remove the battery tray and treat it to a bath in evapo rust to clean it up a bit. Overall the engine bay just needs a good clean up to unfluff it a bit.

I'd pull it GW. I think you'll be so much happier with the results later on. Even though you are not restoring, the cleaning and detail process will be so much easier and effective.

Besides.................I want this thread to keep going

Nice work so far!
